(CNN)John Warren Geils Jr., the guitarist and founder of the eponymous J. Geils Band, has died, police in Groton, Massachusetts, said.

Police came to Geils' home for a well-being check, police Chief Donald Palma said. The 71-year-old was found unresponsive and was declared dead at the scene.

Police are investigating the death as a standard procedure. Foul play was not suspected and a preliminary investigation suggests Geils died of natural causes, Palma said.

I used to hear him in Philly, he opened for Springsteen among others. Always a rocking time and he wasn't afraid to shake the rafters." If there's a rock and roll Heaven, they must have one hell of a band."
